Tucked underneath a cinema screen and down a narrow stairway, the Lido Jazz Room boasts live music every Friday and Saturday, 8pm – 10pm, from the best jazz players in town. Inspired by iconic Manhattan jazz bars of the 80s, the Lido Jazz Room seats 40 guests alongside the in-house piano and drum kit. Sonny Rehe, owner of Fitzroy’s Uptown Jazz Café, curates the gig guide with both local and visiting acts being featured.

Margie Lou Dyer Quintet
Performance times and bookings
Margie Lou has held down a residency at St. Kilda’s fantastic jazz and seafood restaurant Claypots for half a decade and this show is a rare chance to see her in the East. Her gravelly, astonishingly expressive voice is reminiscent of the best women of early jazz, like Bessie Smith, or Billie Holiday, and her blues-tinged, heavy-grooving New Orleans style of piano playing is unique in Melbourne. Daughter of legendary jazzman Warwick “Wocka” Dyer and musical soulmate and partner of the late Allan Browne, Margie is Melbourne jazz royalty.

Come catch her perform with her enormously talented Quintet. Not to be missed.

Duration: 120 mins

Bob Sedergreen and Friends “THE FIRST ONE”

After an extremely successful night in January, "The First One" return. Some two decades ago a trio of Rosa – Horbelt – Sedergreen became the last bastion of live music in Carlton’s famous Lygon Street Strip. They played outside the restaurant Il Primo literally translated as The First One. And recorded a CD of the same title mixing contemporary jazz classics with show tunes. The have somehow stuck together both musically and as friends despite their busy schedules. For this gig the Trio will be joined by Oscar Rosa guitarist/vocalist who has worked with them as The Hottentots.. We invite you to once again to share the joy and empathy at this rare performance of this most cohesive ensemble.

Tickets: $25/$20 Bookings: Bookings essential –
this is a small room. Book early to avoid disappointment.
